Linda Christensen

 Note in the Pocket, Inc. 

Linda Christensen knows that the pain and humiliation of homeless or impoverished children is only increased when their classmates see them wearing the same ill-fitting or inappropriate clothes day after day. As Order Fulfillment Leader for Note in the Pocket, a group that provides clothing to needy children, Linda works hard to give each child two weeks’ worth of clothing, shoes, socks, underwear, and outerwear. Because of Linda’s efforts, children all over Wake County are able to rid themselves of the outward signs of poverty and arrive at school in clothing that affords them dignity. Last year Linda spent over 700 hours assembling clothing packages, training volunteers, and overseeing her team. She monitors inventory, communicates with donations-processing teams, and helps wherever help is needed. Linda’s passion and enthusiasm bring joy not only to children, but also to her fellow volunteers.  

Thank you, Linda, for your dedication to this life-changing work!
